Logo SIMON WILLARD FEDERAL MAHOGANY INLAID TALL CASE CLOCK

Federal Mahogany Inlaid Tall Case Clock by Simon Willard, Roxbury, Massachusetts, c. 1790. The case is embellished with line inlay, the hood and waist with reeded brass stop-fluted columns, all on ogee bracket feet, the floral polychrome painted and gilt dials showing moon’s age, seconds hand, and calendar aperture. Bonnet has fine fretwork detail. With eight-day brass weight-driven movement, time & strike. Includes pendulum, weights, and key. Repaired
age crack on base panel- see photo.


Simon Willard (1753-1848) is regarded by many as America’s leading clock maker and also the most innovative. He and his three clockmaker brothers are the foremost family members of an ascendancy that went on for over fifty years.
